PostHeaderIcon What Do We Know About The New Alfa Romeo 8C?

It would seem that the most important goals for any manufacturer today are continuity and clarity. If you do cheap cars, do only them. If you do sports cars, focus only on them. If you are premium, adapt to what the people think is premium and push.

Alfa Romeo had a problem with its mission, vision, and continuity. Since the Eighties, it seems to have shifted its vision two or three times basically confusing buyers when it comes to what the brand truly represents. Now, it is eager to find its footing with what it should have done all along – sports character, upscale styling, and premium nature.

At a press conference held earlier this year Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Maserati and Alfa Romeo said: “We know our future depends on staying true to our sports car roots. We have learned that when we stay true to Alfa DNA, we can stand out in any segment.”

Thankfully, the brand seems to have found what it wants to be the best at. To communicate this noble vision to the automotive lunatics and solidify brand recognition, Alfa Romeo has to do some extraordinary things. Having the Giulia Quadrifoglio and the Stelvio Quadrifoglio was only a start. Now, the company needs to go further, and that further comes in the shape of the 8C.

Recently, the late Sergio Marchionne hinted at the new 8C only months before his death. Moreover, the plan FCA displayed in June clearly showcases a planned super sports car called the 8C, and it will appear in the next three or four years.

PostHeaderIcon The New Alfa Romeo 8C Could Be An 800-Horsepower Supercar Stalker

Alfa Romeo’s plan to bring the back the 8C nameplate has come with a lot of speculation about its presentation. The prevalent buzz surrounding the model is that it’s going to be a supercar of some sort. As it turns out, though, it could be more than just a supercar. The new Alfa Romeo 8C could be an 800-horsepower hybrid monster, debunking previous rumors that said that it would “only” have 700 horsepower on tap.

PostHeaderIcon Alfa Romeo 8C

The Alfa Romeo 8c is returning after an eight-year absence, and it’s going to look and perform a lot differently than its limited-run predecessor. Early plans inside Alfa Romeo indicate that the new 8C is being packaged as a 700-horsepower supercar that will be able to compete against the likes of Ferrari, Porsche, and Lamborghini. There’s no timetable yet on when the new 8C will arrive, but it should make its way into our lives before 2022, at least if it ends up happening.

PostHeaderIcon Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Monza

While there may have been 188 units of the Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 built for road use, it was initially designed as a race car. The “2300” in the car’s name was a reference to the 2.3-liter straight-eight engine that was hidden under its long hood. The 8C was built in several different series’ in its first few years of production, with some (the 188 road cars) serving as luxury vehicles and the rest serving as dedicated race cars. By now, you’ve probably noticed that the model here also sports the “Monza” name. This name was given to the shortened, two-seater GP cars after an early model emerged victorious during the 1931 Italian Grand Prix at Monza.

Throughout the car’s production, it was rather successful on the track, including four consecutive wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the consecutive wins at Mille Miglia and Targa Florio, and back-to-back wins at the 24 Hours of Spa. On top of that, the car also led to the development and introduction of the Monoposto Tipo B, which, as you may or may not know, dominated Grand Prix racing with 46 wins between 1932 and 1935.

The model you see here has had several owners, but was raced quite a bit between 1934 and 1948, securing 7th in Class at the Klausen Hillclimb in 1934, 3rd Overall at the Circuito di San Remo in 1947, 2nd Overall and 1st in Class at the Sassi-Superga Hillclimb in 194, and 1st in Class at the Cantania-Etna Hillclimb in 1948, among others. It is Chassis No. 2311218 and was sold new in Italy back in the 1930s. And while it changed hands on a somewhat regular basis, it’s racing DNA kept in on the track even recently as the owner prior to this auction used it to participate in Euro and US. Tours – this isn’t a car you just lock away in a dark garage.

This Monza recently went up for auction at the Gooding & Company Auction during Monterey Car Week, exchanging hands for more than $10 million. It’s only fitting that we do a full review of such an amazing car, so keep reading to take a closer look at it.

PostHeaderIcon Pur Sang's Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Monza Is As Close To The Original As It Can Get: Video

Those who know of Pur Sang Argentina will attest that the company that built its brand on recreating the Bugatti Type 35 using period technology is as good as it gets for anybody looking to own near-perfect versions of classic race cars. The company has since expanded past building the Type 35, and as this episode of Tuned will show you, Pur Sang has proven to be just as adept at building an immaculate production of the 1931 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Monza.

Tuned host Matt Farah had the pleasure of meeting the commercial director of Pur Sang, John Bothwell, who happens to own a Pur Sang-built 8C. As Farah notes, this 8C may not be an original – those are rarely driven on the street because they can fetch a price of eight figures – but it’s also insulting to call it a replica. That’s because Pur Sang builds these cars with the same materials that were used on the originals, right down to the tiniest of details. Farah put it best when he said “it would take a nerd of epic proportions to spot differences from the original.”

And as awesome as it looks, the Pur Sang 8C’s true calling card is its drivability. Farah and Bothwell took it down for a test run and while it did prove to be a little complicated to get the hang of, even for a driver of Farah’s experience, the sound of the 2.3-liter supercharged straight-eight engine made the whole experience worth it. It is, in almost every way imaginable, as close to the original one as it could get.


PostHeaderIcon Touring Superleggera Disco Volante Spyder

At the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, Touring Superleggera unveiled the Disco Volante, a concept car that paid tribute to a series of experimental race cars built by the same firm in cooperation with Alfa Romeo in the early 1950s. A year later, the Disco Volante was turned into a production model using Alfa Romeo 8C underpinnings and a 4.7-liter V-8 engine. Three years have passed since the then and Touring Superleggera returned to Geneva with the Disco Volante Spyder — a convertible version of the same coach built sports car.

Created to celebrate the company’s 90th anniversary, the Disco Volante Spyder is actually a more accurate interpretation of the original car, which was also conceived as a spider drop-top. The vehicle is actually more of a targa due to the flying buttresses behind the seats, but it’s still an open-top that has more in common with the first Disco Volante compared to the coupe the Italians launched in 2013.

Other than that, the Spyder is just as sexy and employs the same sporty underpinnings as its coupe sibling. Touring Superleggera has confirmed that the Disco Volante Spyder will be built in small numbers, having already received European approval and support from Alfa Romeo. Don’t expect to see a Disco Volante Spyder in your neighborhood anytime soon, as only seven examples will be built. They will also be quite expensive and sold only to carefully selected customers.

Alfa Romeo 8C Monaco

It’s baffling why most of Monaco’s supercar owners prefer to drive in circles around the center of the town while they have such magnificent mountain roads just outside the city. In this footage you see a gorgeous Alfa Romeo 8C Spider go from Cap d’Ail to La Turbie in what can only be described as one of the most scenic roads in the world.

And there’s the answer to the question we posed above. The elite Monégasque who have tasteful cars like the Alfa 8C Spider do spend most of their time out in the hills. It’s mostly the Russians and Arabs populating the city with their vulgar, chrome-wrapped, straight-piped super cars.

And in case you have forgotten about the Alfa Romeo 8C Spider, it’s a drop-top version of the 8C Competizione which is a car not very nice to drive, badly made, and rather uncomfortable. But none of those niggles really matter, because the 8C is one of the all-time most charming, sexiest, most desirable cars ever made. The car’s got a 450 horsepower V8, but we would still fancied it even if it had like a two-cylinder motor out of a Fiat 500.

Edo Alfa Romeo 8C-0

Lately German tuner Edo Competition has taken to showing off the rare exotic cars they get at the workshop, even if they are not really planning to do anything with them. This time they want to show us a gorgeous red Alfa Romeo 8C.

Now here’s a car we hope Edo refrains from modifying because it is pretty much perfect the way it is. Granted, it is not the best driver’s car, or has the highest build quality. But you don’t buy an 8C for that stuff. It’s just about the looks and you passion for the brand. Edo, of course, is not really into visual modifications anyway. If they decide to fiddle with this car it’ll the mechanical parts they’d be improving, which, come to think of it, is not a bad idea after all.

Launched back in 2007, Alfa Romeo 8C is powered by a 4.7 liter V8 engine which it shared back then with Maserati GranTurismo, developing 450 bhp at 7000 rpm and a peak torque of 470 Nm at 4750 rpm. Transmission is a 6-speed automated manual with paddle shifts which isn’t a very good one to be honest, but at least you get a locking rear differential. The 8C rides on sexy 20” wheels which look good but result in a pretty terrible ride; it’s another one of this car’s quirks!

PostHeaderIcon 1932 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Zagato Named Best Of Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este

The Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este has got to be one of the coolest and most unique car events in the world right now. Built 1568, the Villa d’Este Hotel on the shores of Lake Como in Italy is the backdrop for this extraordinary and intimate event, which welcomes classic cars and motorcycles, as well as modern concepts and race cars. Among others, 2015 brought out the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage concept, a 1961 Ferrari GT SWB California Spider that sold at auction for over $11 million, and Cameron Glickenhaus’s SCG003, fresh off its finish at the Nürburgring 24 hour race.

But, the best in show award went to this pristine 1932 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Spider, owned by American collector David Sydorick and wearing coach-built bodywork from Zagato. The 8C was Enzo Ferrari’s race car of choice before he started building his own several years later. With a 2.3-liter inline-eight cylinder engine, Alfa Romeo never intended the 8C 2300 to be a road car, but eventually decided to sell it as a rolling chassis due to high demand. Wealthy owners then took their 8C chassis to Carrozzerrias (coach builders), like Pininfarina, Touring, or, in this case, Zagato, to have them fitted with bodies of their choosing.
